Viewing Notes

Finishing off the night in total comfort zone! Anyone who knows me knows that Ronin is one of my all-time favorite films. I’ve probably watched it 20-30 times by now. I just love the hell out of it; it’s perfect in almost every way.

This is the first time I’ve watched my BluRay of it though, so it was like experiencing it for the first time again.

Definitely an overlooked/underrated Frankeneimer classic. People should watch this film just for the two, TWO, amazing car chase scenes alone. One of De Niro’s last truly great performances as well.
